    Brookline Reviews

    1 review
    Brookline is a beautiful town in Southern Vermont where you get to experience 4 very different seasons. There are ski mountains, hiking trails, rivers for kayaking, tubing, fishing and of course foliage season and much more. Very quiet area but lots of outdoors adventures await.
